Do “We the People” have the right of Revolution?

 By Doug Book, staff writer

 Do the citizens of the United States have an absolute right to,  by force of arms if necessary,  overthrow a government which has,  with malicious deliberation,  become destructive of those ideals of liberty granted by God and guaranteed by instruments such as the Constitution of the Unites States?

 Clearly the Founders believed in the existence of such a right. There could be no more axiomatic example than the American Revolution itself!

 And though these men warned against pursuing such a course for  “light and transient causes”,  rightly observing that  “…mankind are more disposed to suffer…than right themselves by abolishing forms to which they are accustomed,”  the Declaration of Independence states without reservation that if any government should become  “destructive”  of its proper role,  it is the right of the citizens to  “…alter or abolish it and institute new government…”  

 The left is quick to maintain that anyone suggesting the American people have a right to reclaim country or liberty,  even from those who have deliberately and with malevolent purpose represented a mortal threat to both,  is little more than a wanton terrorist,  his words being responsible for every act of violence from Oklahoma City to Tucson.

 But if this is the case,  we modern day  “domestic terrorists”  are in the best of company. For in the Declaration of Independence,  Thomas Jefferson set down a number of abuses which King George had heaped upon the American colonies,  among them:

 “He has refused his Assent to Laws,  the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.”

 “He has erected a multitude of New Offices,  and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”

 “He has excited domestic insurrections against us…”

 Was Jefferson a terrorist for relating these truths about the mistreatment of American colonists by the King of England and for exhorting the people to do something about it?

 Though times change,  the villainy of tyrants does not. Look at the striking similarities over the centuries between the actions of George the III and those of Barack the First.

 Obama too has  “refused his Assent to Laws”,  working to have the Arizona immigration law overturned and forbidding the Executive branch to enforce current federal immigration statutes.

 He has  “erected a multitude of New Offices”,  creating czars whose control over the American public is indisputable,  yet over whom the people have no authority or recourse. So many in, fact that his own Vice President obviously couldn’t name them all.

 And Obama has also  “excited domestic insurrections”  against the American public,  ordering his minions to shut down radio programs critical of his policies and telling supporters to argue with his detractors and  “get in their face.”  

 And what can be said of a President who suggests his followers  “bring a gun”  to confront Republicans and their political backers. 

 Do the American people have the right to overthrow a tyrant?  Damned right we have! And rather than members of the Continental Congress directing the fight,  today it will be the people leading their legislators and probably warning them to stay out of the way or be run over.

 Most of us will live to see it. Many will take part. And you can bet that we will win.

  1. Of course we do! It is clearly laid out in our Founding Documents, specifically the Declaration of Independence: "When in the course of Human Events…(if anyone doesn't know the rest, a quick google search will enlighten them).
    We not only have the right, but the duty!

  2. "But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security."
    Under the present administration, the American States, and the individuals comprising them, have suffered untold abuses, Federal infringement upon each individual State's Right to self-determination, have endured the lies, deceptions, and alterations of course from our Constitutional Republic.
    Additionally, we have been subjected to the schemes, devises, whims and caprices of unelected "czars" surrounding the occupant in the White House. The very term "czar" being an odious concept to all free born persons, has no place or right of existence in a Constitutional Republic and must be forever abolished in both name and function.
    The multiple abuses committed by this administration of the merely traditional, but not Constitutionally identified and sanctioned, "Executive Order" has abridged and undermined the law-making bodies of the House and Senate.
    This in no way completes the Bill of Particulars against this sitting President. Additional insults, acts of sedition, cover-ups, and monetary theft of Government monies and assets to support a Socialist, Anti-American agenda (and to repay those individuals and bodies which have kept him in power); as well as enforcing unjustified over-taxation of the populace to pay for those excesses.
    This President and his family have enjoyed ,beyond the maximum, all the benefits, travel, and luxuries afforded to the office and have given nothing back to this Country except deception, job losses, a rotten economy, a smothering national deficit, weakened Liberties and Freedoms, attacks upon the Second Amendment Rights of peaceable gun owners, and a vile condescension toward the rule of law.
    America will be well rid of the Obama family, including the Presidential daughters who were designated as "Senior Staff" on a June 2011 travel manifest of their family trip and safari to South Africa and Botswana (this little tidbit of falsification was unearthed by a Federal Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch).

  3. As usual Coach is right on the mark. This Tyrant of Tyrants, has displayed extreme psychotic behavior from the pathological liar he has been bred to be; to the empty suit narccissist, without competence, without qualifications as well as without birth certificate; to without any school records to validate his false claims of academia; to the actual personna of a comic bad guy character like Bain in the new Batman movie. He has implemented policies that murder the elderly and the young, the unborn, and even the children just born….crying out for their mother’s arms…

  4. It is both interesting and satisfying to read an article I wrote about ten months ago which bears up under the test of time.
    The people of America were beyond stupid to ever unleash this vermin, (who SAY’S he’s an American, SAY’S he has “papers” to back up that claim but won’t unlock them….and who certainly does not behave like an American), upon ourselves and the rest of the world.
    O’Liar is a pathological narcissist who requires excessive amounts of adulation and affirmation or he becomes enraged when frustrated, confronted and contradicted.
    He exaggerates his achievements and feels overly-“entitled” to demand full compliance with his expectations.
    He remains in a constant state of enviousness; and he foolishly believes others are envious of him.
    He is vain, self-important, and so thoroughly arrogant that he cannot imagine the needs, desires, and requirements of others….one would say that he is devoid of empathy or true compassion.
    He understands some of the situations just fine… he just doesn’t give a damn what happens to Americans.
    He has had everything in his life handed to him….given over to him as if he was someone special….but he is both an ingrate and a serial liar.
    These traits have not been altered in O’Liar since ’06-’07….but the people of this country have been dramatically and negatively changed….and we are ready to fight as if our lives depended upon it.
